a shame they don't break it down by actual type of Port (i.e. Crusted, VP, SQVP, Colheita, LBV, etc).
Actually they do - check out table 13

http://www.ivdp.pt/en/docs/Porto/Table%2013.pdf

All that is lacking is the historical information to tell you where the numbers are heading.
thanks, I didn't see that table when searching.

May bid online, but am fairly easy about these, so will not bid very aggressively on my own account for the whole stash. If anyone wants a share (I think there's eight bottles) please PM me to let me know how many bottles you'd like, and how much you'd like to run to; and I'll work out a collective bid position.

Tom if you win these and are willing to part with one or more let me know. 1973 is my birthyear and as you know it's not a great year for port. I'd love to finally try a port from this year.

and sold at 94/- per dozen
Which sounds incredibly cheap, until you reckon it against average earnings, then and now.

The UKs average income has risen approximately 500 fold since the 1890s, which makes this price equate to around £200/btl..
